I’ll be honest here, I hated this project.
I defined myself as an artist that does not put the idea of “self” into my art. I dream and live as me, but I see myself more than an individual, I saw myself as a collective. When I look at art, I try to have the perspective of a third person. So when tasked to deal with a project about my ego, it was disgustingly painful.
Here the project consists of X + Y = Z equations. Insert “Me” into a “Scenario” to get an “outcome”. The problem I faced with this project is that I don’t have a sense of “me”. I don’t really recall my childhood memories, and my experience of secondary school was a mess. Over time I have made who I am and who I perceive myself to be as distinct. But I try my best, to create something cohesive.
